Death does not wait to see if things are done or not done, said Kularnava.

So I am getting it done.

We’re redoing our wills. Many hours of the precious life I have left have recently been spent thinking, planning and meeting with our notary. We will sign them this week and then get on with living.

Our life and what we have gathered together is not so large or complex and yet, it does take some thought.

I catch myself saying “well, if I die”, as if somehow I might not.

Rather like taking out insurance and hoping to never have to use it. I, in fact, hope to live happily to a very old age and then having just tidied up from having family and friends over, sipping a cup of earl grey tea and reading a wonderful book, close my eyes for the last time. And, if I do, then all the nuts that have been stored away for that long winter of retirement will be gone. Taken out one by one and enjoyed.

Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring, and because it has fresh peaches in it. ~Alice Walker

Enjoy the fresh peaches dear ones.

All good things, k
